The JVs played two league home games last week, losing to Ferndale on Tuesday and beating Hoopa on Saturday, bringing their league record to 5-2 and their overall tally to 12-10 on the season. They played their final game of the season at home against Southern Trinity last night. Results were not available at press time.
On Tuesday the Cubs could not get their defense in gear, and the Wildcats took advantage and won 42-32. Freshman guard Trisha Harrison led South Fork scorers with 11 points, followed by freshman forward Kayla Kercher with 8, freshman forward and guard Kassie Humphrey with 7 and freshman center Cassidy McAllister with 6 points.

On Saturday a much livelier effort was made by the young Lady Cubs as they avenged an earlier season loss to the Lady Warriors, defeating them 35-30. Harrison missed most of the game with an ankle injury, but Kercher and Humphrey stepped up to fill the void.
”This was a tough game for us,” said coach Michelle Bushnell. “Hoopa is so aggressive it’s hard to get anything around them.”
But a steady effort from the Lady Cubs paid off and Kercher’s dominance under the basket bodes well for the future of the team. She led all scorers with 12, followed by Harrison with 9, Humphrey and McAllister with 5, and sophomore guard Tristan Jeffers with 4 points.
